West Jerusalem market

I normally wander in the Arab market (souq), as I adore the (for me) exotic ambiance, but this time we took a family outing to the main shouk in a Jewish neighbourhood. Let's admire the delights from the region, shall we?









Have a culinary day!

    1. They are flaky pastries made with LOTS of honey and sometimes filled with a pistachio paste. If you are familiar with Greek desserts, they are very similar - baklava etc. They are way too sweet for me, but you should definitely try some if you come across them.
